First, complete the Priority missions until you reach the Govorkam System. Land on Kadara, go to the Transit Console, and select “Take Lift to Slums” as the destination. Drive along the road to the west to the following location to find the station with Thrasia. Complete her “A Packaged Deal” side quest to get a discount at her shop. Have the “Grey Market Connections” perk, and you will sell items for 10% more than what they are worth at her store. Buy as much Titanium from her as possible since it gives the best profit. It cost 231 credits each to purchase and you get 256 credits each for selling it back to her. Try to get around 10,000 Titanium to get 250,000 credits from each trade, giving you approximately 5 million credits every minute. Simply save the game and load it again to reload the store inventory. Repeat this as many times as desired to obtain an unlimited amount of money.

First, use the “Infinite credits” glitch to get a lot of credits. Then, go to a populated area with merchants, like planet Aya. Purchase all the desired ultra rare, rare, and uncommon resources from the merchants. Then, save the game and reload it for the merchant’s inventory to be restocked. Repeat this as many times as desired.
Infinite ultra rare weapons, armor, and resources
There is an orange storage container in the room next to the shop on the Nexus at the beginning of the game. However, it disappears after completing EOS. Open it, take all but one item, manually save the game, and then reload the save. The orange container will be restocked. Repeat this exploit as many times as desired. You can get ultra rare and rare weapons, armor, and resources from the orange container. You can also break down the weapons and items for unlimited resources or sell them to get an unlimited amount of money. Note: It is highly recommended to create a save before starting this exploit, just in case you accidentally take all the items from the container.

There is an orange container located at far bottom left side of the EOS map on a small enemy outpost, at the following location. Open it, take all but one item, manually save the game, and then reload the save. The orange container will be restocked again, with potential ultra rare weapons, armor, and resources. Repeat this exploit as many times as desired. Just make sure to always leave one item in the container so it respawns more items. It is highly recommended to create a save before starting this exploit, just in case you accidentally take all the items from the container.
Complete the “A Better Beginning” mission on EOS to unlock the “Meet The Resistance” mission on Voeld. Complete that mission, then the “On The Frontlines” mission, and finally the “Stage A Rescue” mission to be directed to speak to Buxil on planet Voeld to start the “Remove The Heart” mission. Wear the Deep Space Exploration Suit since it gives a 25% XP bonus. During that mission, reach the Kett base. Kill all the enemies at the base, then complete the optional objective of destroying all three Defense Matrix devices by scanning and sabotaging them. Then, run back the way you came to enter the base, past the first crates at the top of the ramp leading up from the bridge to the Kett base. Run forward towards the next set of crates to hear an explosion in the distance, see the “Defense matrix component destroyed” notification, and get another 530 XP. Run back to the same crates, then run forward to the same area to get the notification again and another 530 XP. Repeat this as many times as desired to get 530 XP every 3 to 4 seconds while wearing the Deep Space Exploration Suit. You also do not need to wait for the notification to appear since you get the XP as soon as you get closes enough to the mounds of snow. When your life support runs low, just run inside one of the structures to restore it. Note: This exploit was performed on Version 1.04 of the game. It will eventually get patched. To avoid not being able to use this exploit, either do not install new patches before using it or delete the patches. You can avoid patches being installed by disconnecting from the internet until you are ready for the game to install new patches.
Easy rare and ultra rare items
Once you get close to a container, the game locks the specific items you will get from it. However, if you save the game a sufficient distance away from the container, the loot inside will still be random. Thus, save the game a decent distance from a container, then open it. If you do not want the items in the container, reload the saved game and keep trying until you get some desired rare or ultra rare items.
Once you are on the Tempest spaceship, go to the Research and Development terminal next to Liam to learn and craft weapons and armor. The iconic N7 armor from the original trilogy can be found under the Milky Way galaxy tab and requires a total of 250 Milky Way research points to unlock the entire set. The chest piece costs 100 points and the other three pieces cost 50 each. The N7 armor is also upgradeable for additional research points. The N7 chest piece increases shields by 10%, biotic power damage by 8%, and biotic recharge speed by 15% after fully upgraded. The N7 arms, legs, and helmet have the same bonuses and provide 7% increased shields and biotic power damage after a full upgrade. Wearing the complete and fully upgraded set provide 31% increased shields, 29% biotic power damage, and 15% recharge speed.
Pathfinder helmet and Platinum Nomad skin
To get the Platinum Nomad skin, simply sign up on the Andromeda Initiative website. To get the Pathfinder helmet, login to your Andromeda Initiative account, sign up for the newsletter, and watch all six training videos. The videos cannot be skipped or even closed shortly after they begin. In order to qualify for the reward, each video needs to be entirely viewed. The Andromeda Initiative videos help explain the backstory of the game. Once you have viewed all six videos, both the Pathfinder helmet and Platinum Nomad skin will be unlocked. To obtain the items in-game, progress through the story until you have reached the Tempest. All rewards can be claimed from the computer inside the Pathfinder’s quarters on the Tempest. After obtaining the items, the Pathfinder helmet can immediately be used. To use the Platinum Nomad skin, you first need to unlock the Nomad rover through the mission on EOS. You can then change the Nomad skin using any forward station.
Increase inventory capacity
You can unlock extra inventory space shortly after reaching EOS (first planet). After colonizing the planet and choosing between the science or military outpost, you are introduced to the AVP system on the Nexus. You will get AVP points for completing objectives, such as additional tasks and Heleus missions. These can be spent to release additional Cryo pods and earn bonuses. Once you have the ability to waken extra members of the Nexus crew, you can unlock a perk to increase your item limit and carrying capacity. Navigate to the Commerce Pods section of the menu (you are automatically introduced to the menu through story progression), and select “Trade Capacity” to find it.
Reset skill points
On the Tempest spaceship, go down the ladder to the med bay. After talking to the doctor, look for a large machine in the corner of the room with a human skeleton on it. Interact with the machine to respec your character. The first reset costs 20 credits, the second costs 520 credits, and it gets gradually more expensive for each additional one. During open world travel, you can quickly return to the Tempest while driving the Nomand vehicle. Hold Y to be teleported back to the spaceship.
Secret Remnant VI skill
To unlock the secret Remnant VI skill in the Tech tree, you must complete a special side quest given by Peebee. The skill summons Zap, similar to how engineers can summon turrets, but the friendly Remnant drone actually moves around in combat, helping Ryder and teammates. First, complete the Vault on EOS, recruit Peebee into the squad, and talk to her aboard the Tempest. Peebee lives inside one of the escape pods next to the Tempest bridge. After talking to Peebee, you will get an e-mail titled “Rem-Tech” from her. The e-mail tasks you with recovering some Remnant technology from a site on planet Voeld. The quest marker leads to a monolith site where you need to defeat some Remnant Observers and Breachers. Once the enemies have been defeated, you must solve a Remnant Glyph puzzle. The following image shows the puzzle solution. After solving the puzzle, the Rem-Tech will be added to your inventory. Take it back to Peebee on the Tempest, and she will ask you to meet her in her apartment on the Nexus. Travel there to unlock the Remnant VI skill in the Tech tree. The Remnant VI skill has the following upgrades available as more skill points are assigned into the tree:
Rank 2: 15% increased health
Rank 3: 15% increased beam damage
Rank 4: 40% increased health regen or 30% health regen delay reduction
Rank 5: 30% increased beam damage or 100% increased health
Rank 6: Detonating missiles that inflict 90 damage or improved beam for added shield damage
New Game+ mode
Successfully complete the main story and entire Priority Ops quest chain to unlock the “New Game+” option. This mode allows all skill points, learned powers, non-mission items, research data, and credits, as well as most character stats, to carry over to a second playthrough with an increased difficulty. You can customize your character and go through the custom character creator for history and training selection. However, mission progression, cryo pod perks, codex entries, and narrative choices reset. You will still retain your old save game files as long as you do not overwrite them, allowing you to go back to your first playthrough.
Easy Remnant Glyph puzzles
Remnant Glyph puzzles are basically a Sudoku puzzle with glyphs instead of numbers. Use the following basic rules to make solving the puzzles more easily:
There must be a glyph inside every box.
A row cannot have more than one type of glyph.
A column cannot have more than one type of glyph.
There cannot be a repeat of a glyph in a highlighted shape.
To solve Remnant Glyph puzzles, first fill in the “?” marks using your scanner and following the yellow power conduits to the nearby glyphs. Then, check that a column, row, or block has three glyphs filled in. After filling in the rest, look for another row, column, or block with three glyphs and move to it. Finally, confirm the puzzle looks correct and try decrypting it.
To very easily solve Remnant Glyph puzzles, use an online Sudoku puzzle solver. Simply assign a number to a glyph. For example, assign Shape-A to 1, Shape-B to 2, Shape-C to 3, and so on. Then, replicate and insert the glyphs as numbers into the online Sudoku solver. Once you have the solution, replicate and insert the numbers as glyphs into the Remnant puzzle. Note: This only works with Remnant Glyph puzzles that are in perfect 4×4 design as the Sudoku.
All Glyph puzzle solutions and locations
There are 20 Remnant Glyph puzzles in the game. Solve all 20 puzzles in a single playthrough to get the “Cryptographer” trophy. The video guide shows them in chronological story order. 6 out of 20 puzzles are missable because they are inside Remnant Vaults that cannot be revisited after completing them, or in quest areas you cannot return to. The missable ones are marked in the overview below. Most of them are located at Alien Monoliths or inside Remnant Vaults. Each vault contains at least one missable puzzle. If you miss a puzzle, you cannot get the “Cryptographer” trophy during that playthrough. The Remnant puzzles are similar to Sudoku. You first must locate hidden glyphs, which are always in close proximity to the puzzle. Use your scanner to follow the yellow cables from the remnant console to the glyphs and scan them. Then, decrypt the Remnant code by assigning the glyphs to a grid. No row or column can include repeats of the same glyph (only one glyph of each type per line). The same rule applies to each quadrant block (usually four quadrants divided by glowing lines). You cannot have two of the same glyphs in one quadrant. Start with the lines or blocks that are only missing one glyph. This will immediately give you the last glyph for that line (whichever one is not in the line yet). Next, move to the lines that are missing two glyphs. Piece by piece you will get closer to the correct combination. You can also use Remnant Decryption Keys (occasionally found inside chests) to immediately solve the puzzle.
